Gingham has to be the ultimate summer fabric for me; it has a whimsical, innocent quality that looks so appropriate in summer. Gingham was always going to be a key trend this season after Christopher Kane sent it down his S/S catwalk; re-inventing the look with provocative cutaway panels.

Of course you do have to be careful how you style gingham, else you could end up looking like this:

No offence to the Dorothy's, but the gingham milkmaid dress is a garment that should be reserved soley for Andrew Lloyd Webber productions.
My favourite gingham piece that I've spotted so far this season is this sheer longline shirt from, £25. Tuck the shirt into cropped trousers or wear loose over this season's shorts for a look that's bang on trend and miles away from an Andrew Lloyd Webber protege.

Meadham Kirchhoff's new colloboration with Topshop has launched on today and I can't stop drooling over it. Meadham Kirchhoff is the label run by design duo Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff, who met whilst studying at St Martin's school of art. Their latest Topshop collaboration features a simple palette of black and nude tones. However the addition of glittery polka dots to jersey and chiffon t-shirts is what really caught my eye, my inner 5 year old loves a bit of multi-coloured glitter, and some how Meadham Kirchhoff pull off the impossible of making glitter look cutting-edge and cool. My favourite piece is definitely this simple jersey tee, priced £55. I'd wear it with leggings and ballet flats for day and then tuck it into a neat high waisted skirt for night. And the rest of the collection is equally as delicious, check it out at now.

Gemma Arterton's red carpet look can be quite hit and miss in my opinion; she loves a vampish heel and a mini dress, and whilst she has the body to work the look, I can't help longing to see her prettier side. Which is why I'm thrilled to see her looking quite so delicious at the Prince of Persia premiere in this wonderful Valentino strapless dress. The gown is embroidered with thousands of silver beads and in this season's nude colour that looks so delicate and fresh against a pale complexion. Teamed with the red lipstick and a chic up do, Arterton really has the markings of an old school Hollywood actress in this gown. Occasionally I get told I look Gemma which I absolutely LOVE. Hmm wonderful if Mr Valentino has anymore gowns he's willing to lend out to pale skinned brunettes...?
